Sharepoint AD security group, email address, sending alerts

I am running Sharepoint 2010.

I have a mail enabled security group. When I send an alert to this group I get an error saying that the group does not have an email addess.

I can send to the groups email address in outlook fine and it shows up in the GAL.

If I go into Sharepoint security and I manually edit the group. I can add in an email address for the group. If I enter in the email address maunally I can send alerts to the group.

Is this correct? Shouldn't Sharepoint read the groups email address directly from AD when I add in the group to the security list on the site?

Thank you for your help

Check the properties on the group under message delivery restrictions.  Accept messages from all senders.  uncheck require that all senders are authenticated

Try this

Give everyone view acces to the group.

Add read permissions for the Sharepoint group to the site.

What do you mean read access in the group? Sharepoint reads the group from AD correctly and I have the group to have read permissions on the site. Am I missing something?

I havent made any changes and go figure Sharepoint is reading the email address off of AD now.

I just made the changes in Exchange for the group to have an email address. I am guessing the change has not replicated back to all my domain controllers and maybe Sharepoint did not sync with AD until now.

No problem with configuration. Question was invalid since the problem fixed itself with time.
